We have several opportunities for students for short and long term service commitments. Our goal is to provide activities that lead to enrichment for the kids that attend. Broadly, we focus on the following areas; the arts, character and leadership, education and career, sports fitness and recreation and health and life skills. We have mentoring programs for longer periods of time, which is for a year or more. In our core programs, the kids that attend are between the ages of 6-18. The minimum time that we ask for is 20 hours. The minimum age of our volunteers is 18, and all volunteers must pass a background check.
